Dormakaba has a simplified migration path for its magstripe users to upgrade to its Saflok and Ilco mobile-enabled radio frequency ID electronic door locks and Ambiance Management Software.
“Providing smart and secure access solutions based on the latest technologies is the foundation of our business,” Mike Lopes, dormakaba senior product manager, electronic locks, said in a statement. 

Earlier this month, dormakaba announced it will no longer offer its Saflok and Ilco magstripe products for new installations or renovation projects. The company will continue to support installed magstripe locks until March 25, 2024. 

“Given the continuous evolution of hotel access to RFID technology, the retirement of our magstripe locks aligns with dormakaba’s commitment to offer advanced solutions that deliver a reliable, modern hotel experience,” Lopes continued. “By replacing our magstripe locks, operators can take advantage of the many features and benefits of our reliable mobile-ready RFID technology.”
